SAFER ROAD WORKERS, SAFER ROAD USERS.
That the highways sector becomes a beacon of best practice for the good management of all health, safety and wellbeing issues, and that other sectors look to us as leaders in this field.
We want to drive forward and constantly innovate, never standing still and ensure we always strive to be seen as pioneers in our sector.
We want to look back in years to come and be proud to see that we have made a lasting difference for everyone who works in our industry at every level.

Sign the petition
Make it a specific criminal offence to assault a highway worker
Change the law to ensure highways workers are afforded the same level of protection against abuse as emergency workers
Rates of abuse from members of the public towards highways workers are alarmingly high. The subject is largely ignored and only by the stiffening of penalties can we really effect positive change
OUR CHARITY PARTNER
The Lighthouse Trust supports education and training initiatives within the industry and if someone is so badly injured or suffering from an illness which means they cannot return to their normal work, we can provide access to finance to re-train within our sector. We also finance socially disadvantaged young people and young offenders through education programmes to get into construction
Our health and safety fund finances innovative and implementable ideas to improve health or safety in the work environment and on site.
